Led by esteemed ultra-marathoner Harita Davies, the 60-minute class features 3 meditation exercises plus discussion, advice and inspiration. The content derives from the very practical teachings of spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy (who was himself an accomplished life-long athlete and the founder of one of the world’s largest running teams).
The class will help you to:

- Maintain enthusiasm for your fitness routine.

- Achieve your fitness goals through the practice of self-transcendence.
Meditation is an infinitely vast experience. It can be utilized to relieve daily stress or to achieve the highest spiritual awakening—and everything in between! The very practical techniques covered in Noble Learning classes derive from the teachings of Sri Chinmoy, a highly respected spiritual teacher, athlete, writer, and musician who dedicated his life to the pursuit of global peace and the unlimited potential of the human spirit.

At the conclusion of the session, you’ll receive a Noble Learning Skill Sheet to guide you in practicing the meditation techniques on your own. The handout includes space for you to add your own notes and inspirations.
